Matt Zachowski, who co-founded Intermarket financial PR firm 35 years ago with Martin Mosbacher, died Sept. 12 after a long illness. He was 68.

He is remembered as an inspirational leader and mentor who developed many long-term relationships with clients, especially those operating in the capital markets offering trading-related goods and services.

Prior to launching Intermarket, Zachowski was VP-marketing at COMEX, metals futures exchange, where he launched options on futures contracts. He also was a precious metals analyst at EF Hutton & Co, which became part of Morgan Stanley.

Zachowski began his career in journalism, working at Business International and Chief Executive.

UK-based Lansons acquired Intermarket in 2019.

In April, Josh Passman became CEO of Lansons Intermarket, succeeding the leadership team of CEO Zachowski and president Mosbacher. They became senior consultants.

"Matt was one of the smartest people I ever met. I could not have asked for a better business partner and friend over these past 35 years," said Mosbacher.
